Cautions When Printing a PostScript File From the
Driver UI
5717-016
If you print a PostScript file output from an application with the driver UI, the printed result may not be as
intended, depending on the settings used. If the result is not as intended, when outputting the PostScript file
from the application, use the default print settings.
Several examples of settings are given below, with expected results when the same setting is used in both the
application and the driver.
Setting
[Page Layout]
Setting Content
4 pages per
sheet
Expected Result
Because [4 Pages per Sheet] is set and then printed as [4 Pages
per Sheet], the printed result resembles [16 Pages per Sheet].
[Print Range]-[Page Range] 1,3,5
If the document is 5 pages, only pages 1 and 3 are printed.
[Print Pages]
If the document is 10 pages, only pages 1, 5, and 9 are printed.
Odd number
pages/Even
number pages
[Reverse Order]
[Copies]
Reverse order is executed twice, resulting in the actual output
order being normal.
2
In the case of a 10-page document, 40 pages (10 pages x 2 x 2)
are printed.
NOTE
If you set multiple copies for the number of [Copies] to be printed, depending on the application, a
PostScript file consisting of only part of the page data may be created. If this happens, even if you specify
multiple copies in both the application and the driver UI, only the number of copies specified in the
application will be printed.
49
Printing Methods
Printing from the Command Line
5717-017
In the command line mode, various printer driver parameters can be specified from the command line without
using the GUI. If you want to print a file directly from the command line, use the following lpr command.
$ lpr -P [Printer Name] [File Name]
NOTE
● When printing is executed from a terminal interface command line, printing is performed immediately
without the settings window being displayed.
● Various printer options can be specified by combining keywords (e.g. "Collate") and parameters
included in the PPD file for the relevant printer, as shown below, after the -o option. For details about
the keywords and parameters for printer options, see " Print Settings from the Command
Line(P. 67) ".
$ lpr -P [Printer Name] [File Name] -o [Option]=[Parameter]
1
Start the console.
The method for starting the console differs according to the operating system/distribution used.
2
Enter the lpr/lp command as follows.
Example: From the printer called LBP7110C, print the file sample.ps:
$ lpr -P LBP7110C sample.ps
NOTE
● Specify printer options (option) and parameters (value) after -o (option) as "option name = value".
● If the printer name is omitted, the default printer will be used.
● Supported print options, parameters, and combinations thereof differ according to the type of printer
used.
● If no options are specified or there is an error in a specified option, the option is ignored and print
processing is executed using the default options and settings.

Main Restrictions
5717-02F
The main restrictions when using this driver are as follows.
Usage Restrictions Based on CUPS Operation Settings
When you use CUPS system to print data, the following restrictions apply:
● When you print an image file directly with the lpr command of CUPS, the image may be divided and printed
across several sheet of paper. If this happens, adjust the size of the image.
● When printing a PostScript file with the lpr command, CUPS moves the PostScript file to the lower left corner
of the print area and expands in the size defined by the PostScript file. If you try to print a PostScript file that
is larger than the paper size, the portions that extend off the paper will not be printed.
Exemptions from Operation and Program Warranties
● The warranties do not guarantee operations for procedures and methods described in the operations guide.
● Canon, Inc. ("Canon") and any local Canon company or sole distributor ("local Canon company") disclaims all
liability arising out of the application of operation methods and procedures described in the operations
guide, even if any of the following occurs:
If an error caused by an applicable operation or procedure is recognized in a program installed in your
system or in the system
If a malfunction is recognized in the operation of your printer (it is acknowledged that your printer does not
operate normally)
If you are not satisfied with the print operation or results (appearance, quality, etc.)
